Additional notes
  • WPA2 Enterprise w/ RADIUS Supports 802.1X authentication with a RADIUS server, using AES encryption. This is the highest level of network security, particularly when used in conjunction with client certificate-based authentication (EAP-TLS). All 802.1X protocols
    are supported.
  • EAP settings will be configured at client end and not in the XCA.
